FILE In this Sept. 29, 2014 file photo actor George Clooney and his wife Amal Alamuddin, arrives at the Cavalli Palace for their civil marriage ceremony in Venice, Italy. The Obama administration on Friday formally accused North Korea's government of being responsible for the dramatic hacker break-in at Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc. but offered few hints about how or whether it would retaliate. Its proof: The U.S. detected communications between computer Internet addresses known to be operated by North Korea and hacking tools left behind at the crime scene, which the FBI also said contained subtle clues linking them to that country's government. In Hollywood, Clooney said the entertainment industry should take action now by pushing for the immediate release of The Interview online. In an interview with the trade site Deadline, Clooney urged Sony to stick it online. Do whatever you can to get this movie out. Not because everybody has to see the movie, but because I'm not going to be told we can't see the movie. That's the most important part. (AP Photo/Luca Bruno, File)
